Publisher's Summary

Dan Brown's immensely popular New York Times best-selling The Da Vinci Code is one of the most successful books of recent history. It has captivated millions the world over with its enthralling suspense and its provocative questions about the true nature of Jesus' life.

But is there any truth to this clever work of fiction? Brown makes the extraordinary claim that all the historical information in his book is factually true. Historian Bart D. Ehrman, an authority on Jesus and the early Church, reveals that Brown's book is actually riddled with historical errors. In witty fashion, Ehrman separates fact from fiction, delivering the truth behind the code.

What the Critics Say

"His is a documentary approach, avoiding speculation and theory. This tone distinguishes the book from many other responses to Brown's novel that uphold a particular theological agenda....This is a very readable treatment of some difficult themes." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Ehrman isa classy guy"

    Bart Ehrman manages to dispute the facts of The Da Vinci Code in the most respectful way possible. He enjoyed reading the Da Vinci Code, but wants to set the record straight so that people don't get their facts from a work of fiction. Plus, as usual you get the usual spate of valuable insight concerning biblical history.
